Milford Flat Wildfire Rehabilitation and Stabilization.
On July 6, 2007, a lightning strike stated a wildfire just north of Milford, Utah. During the next two weeks, the fire burned over 360,000 acres of pinyon-juniper woodland, sage brush, and cheat grass habitat. Fire behavior was extreme in some areas. Following the fire, an extensive rehabilitation and stabilization effort costing several million dollars was undertaken. Both native and non-native seed was used. Different seeding procedures were used including drilling, chaining, broadcasting, etc. This field trip would examine several areas that were seeded and some that were not seeded. The relative success or lack thereof of the rehabilitation and stabilization will be discussed. The challenges of using native seed will be the focus of this trip.
Bring sunscreen and dark glasses, limited hiking...but not strenuous.
